Balenciaga Pays Homage to NYC with This Souvenir-Inspired Hoodie

Would you cop?

Have you ever been heading home from vacation and had to grab a somewhat tacky panic-present at the airport? We’ve all been there, and that includes Demna Gvasalia too, apparently. His newly-released Balenciaga hoodie definitely seems inspired by the souvenir goods that flood city streets and airports alike.

This hot pink hoodie has dropped shoulders, long sleeves and an oversized fit, keeping you cozy all through the colder months. The kangaroo pocket is perfect for stashing all your goodies and the drawstring hood will keep out any rain. The unmissable detail, however, comes in the form of the bold black and white graphic across the front. Featuring the text “New York City” alongside images of the skyline and tourist hotspots like the statue of liberty, this is the perfect tongue-in-cheek homage to the city that never sleeps.

You can cop Balenciaga‘s kitsch hoodie now for $895 USD at Selfridges. For a more subtle look, check out the brand’s white logo version.
